Brilliant pizza function. The HOC709X has 7 cooking functions including the really popular pizza function. This is where the fan and bottom heating element work together to cook the pizza through, while crisping the base for delicious results. There’s also a fully programmable timer which lets you preset what time the oven turns on and off. If you get in at 7pm you can set the oven to turn on at 6pm so your meal will be ready when you walk through the door.
